Written by Ronaldo Oregano   
Sunday, 27 July 2014

“The jazz avant-garde has produced relatively few great composers. Henry Threadgill is a member of that exclusive club.”  All Music Guide  


Henry Threadgill Maarten Mooijman (

As a groundbreaking alto saxophonist, composer and conceptualist, Chicago-based Henry Threadgill has been in a league of his own for decades. A member of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) since the ‘60s, Threadgill played with Muhal Richard Abrams’ pioneering Experimental Band and organized the heralded group Air starting in 1975. Threadgill also led such unique and stimulating ensembles as his Sextett, Very Very Circus, and Make a Move. The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2003 and a U.S. Artist Fellowship in 2008, Threadgill recently recorded This Brings Us To with his exciting, genre-pushing Zooid ensemble. Henry Threadgill's Zooid featuring Henry Threadgill on flute, bass flute, and alto sax; Liberty Ellman on guitar; Christopher Hoffman on cello, Jose Davila on trombine and tuba;  and Elliot Kavee on drums will perform on Tuesday, July 29th through Sunday, August 3rd at the VIllage Vanguard.
